Reviews

Reviewer: Krishna Pranav - - February 8, 2012
Subject: Interesting book
This book by Henry Whitehead is quite interesting; it details the rituals practiced in villages in South India.

However, it should be born in mind that the author was a Christian missionary, whose main objective was to convert people. Hence, the parts of the text where the author makes judgements and comparisons about the rituals, or what they mean, should not be taken too literally.

Overall, good information about rituals in South idea; ignore the judgements, comparisons and theories.
